Bunny Valentine

Hi everyone,

Owwww, what a busy week, I can't believe it's Friday again! I am very sorry for not being around very much, hope this improves in a week or so when one of my deadlines has passed....

Are you ready for another Card Makin' Mamas Challenge? Yes? Well, what a coincidence, today starts our new challenge and guess what.....the theme is "VALENTINE".

We are sponsored by Meljen's Design for this challenge and if you win, you get some Meljen's Goodies as a prize! Check out all the details on the Challenge Blog! I personally love Meljen's, such cute and fun images, so I was pretty happy I got to work with one of their digis for my inspiration card :)

I made my hubby's Valentine's card for this challenge, which you can notice straight away as the photography is abysmal and let's not even talk about the shoddy photo shopping. Let's just say I'm glad he will be taking the reins again for the next card...........With this in mind, have a look at my photos:

I know, I know.....not quite straight and such......but I think you can still see the card well enough, right? What do you think of the sentiment? I thought it was very appropriate for this card, but maybe a little silly? Oh well, I like silly sometimes :)
